I loved Insignificant Events in the Life of a Cactus and I love this one even more. Aven, born with no arms, has to do everything with her feet: read, write, play, even eat. Now she’s in a giant high school with 3,000 strangers and she feels like everyone is watching her. A great story about fear, bravery and friendship.— Chris
"High School. Two words that struck fear into the heart of every armless middle schooler I knew. Which was me. And like two people online." This sequel to the critically acclaimed Insignificant Events in the Life of a Cactus, now in paperback, follows Aven Green as she confronts yet another challenge: high school. "Those preparing to 'slay the sucktastic beast known as high school' will particularly appreciate this spirited read." --Kirkus (Starred review) Just as Aven starts to feel comfortable in Stagecoach Pass, with her friends and schoolmates accustomed to her lack of "armage," everything changes once again. She's about to begin high school . . . with 3,000 new kids to stare at her. And no matter how much Aven tries to play it cool, nothing prepares her for the reality. In a year filled with confusion, humiliation, and just maybe love, can Aven manage to stay true to herself?
